MINNESOTA RIVER STEAMBOATING

Following the usual pattern of river town development,
steamboating was essential for Mankato, from its founding
in 1852 until the arrival of the first railroad in 1868.

During the heyday of steamboating at Mankato, boats based
at St. Paul carried settlers and provisions upstream. Down
river boats usually transported wheat and passengers.

The Anthony Wayne Chapter of the National Society
Daughters of the American Revolution dedicates this plaque
in observance of their 100 years of service to the nation.
September 18, 1999.

Location:
Mankato, MN: Minnesota River at the foot of Main Street just beyond the Mankato Railroad Depot.
